to the nation, are we a nation that's better than what happened to the children in sandy hook? are we a nation better than what we saw 50 years ago in birmingham, alabama? so the question is, just as someone so eloquently stated, they're killing our babies. but that was sort of the turning point. >> what do you want to hear from the president on monday when he gives his inaugural speech? what do you want to hear? >> i want to hear him have an extension of what was, i call it, a political program when he got the biden recommendations. essentially, i want him to have a nonviolent call to arms and say to the nation that i am taking this oath of office, commemorating the 84th birthday of the american apostle of nonviolence, and i think that we, as a nation, can do no less to summon the better angels of ourselves to, at this time, at this place, to rededicate ourselves irrevocably to nonviolent resolution where violence is the choice of gun and violence is not a rational option. that's the best way we can honor that extraordinary man. >> very quickly, the president will be taking the oath, using tw
it be in a hurricane or super storm sandy. you can clap for that. that is right. [applause] the servicemen and women and the veterans and their families were here with us this morning are living monuments to that service. their commitment to serve, their willingness to volunteer should be inspiration and is an inspiration to me and it should be to you and i know it is. in spite of all the talk of how divided we are as a nation, how we are as a country, more and more americans are coming together to serve each other every day. volunteers in america is at a five-year high. in 2011, americans spent 8 billion hours giving back to their communities, enough hours to build the entire state building more than a thousand times over. [cheers and applause] you represent that. you're organizing food drives, mentoring children from the building playgrounds and so much more. when i look out and see you all and the kids here today, your service is having an even greater impact because you're in selling what my wife and i and brother and sister-in-law and my sister and brother-in-law are trying to do with our kids,
this other story, there's been a lot of discussion about guns in schools, and guns in general after the sandy hook sad situation in december in connecticut. and now there's a kindergarten girl who apparently owns one of these little devices, you look at the screen at hello kitty bubble gun. apparently, she was talking about this toy at school. it's my understanding she actually didn't even have the toy with her at the mt. carmel area school in pennsylvania. as a result of just talking about shooting bubbles at one another, apparently she received a ten-day suspension. it was reduced to two days, but that's kind of unclear now whether or not she should even have faced any kind of suspensi suspension. >> steve: well, this is kind of crazy the two five-year-old girls were waiting at the bus, hey, i'm going to shoot you with my hello kitty bubble machine and somebody overheard it and next thing you know, just because people are, you know, freaked out about guns since sandy hook, the school got involved. and she was suspended for ten days, and then reduced it to two. but she was also given, becaus
republicans including the leaders for delaying the vote on hurricane sandy relief. we'll be right back. he's big up there. >>> we're back. and i said what a day. hillary clinton's strong performance today was a reminder to many that she would be a formidable candidate. who doesn't know that, in 2016. today we got hints about another one. vice president joe biden. he clearly wants to run. he seems to be laying the groundwork for a run which he was asked about on cnn yesterday. let's listen to what he said. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> there's a whole lot of reasons why i wouldn't run. i haven't made that decision and i don't have to make that decision for awhile. >> so are you ready to run against hillary clinton in 2016? >> i haven't made that judgment and hillary hasn't made that judgment. but i can tell you what. everything that should be done over the next two years that i should be part of would have to be done whether i run or i don't run. if this administration is successful, whoever is running as a democrat is better positioned to win. if we're not successful, whoever
hurricane sandy. the press corps got stuck in florida, in tampa. we couldn't travel, because of the weather. and i decided to do a story on early voting. so i went out to an early voting center, and it was the middle of the afternoon, and there were -- there was a line stretched around the corner. hundreds of people lined up, and i talked to a lot of the people, and a lot of them were voting for the president, and i thought, this idea that his base is not going to turn out is actually not what we're seeing in early voting. >> and in florida. >> and in florida. >> which was one of those states to watch. >> which was a huge swing state. hugely important swing state, and, remember, right up until election night, a lot of people thought the president was going to lose florida. so having that sort of firsthand experience with early voting, seeing how many people had lined up, i thought, you know what? the president might, in fact, rebound and win this after all. >> yeah. >> and i think his campaign felt confident as well at that point, and started to regain their confidence. >>> more of our conv
as the sandy hook tragedy took place. both of these things will be stretched out over time and come together. that's the only thing that should get to the president's desk, constitutional, prudent decisions made by the house, the senate, and the presidency. >> on the day of celebration, congressman, appreciate your time. it does seem we're heading towards what's more familiar in this town krb i know mayor booker is not a huge fan of it, but it's become a staple in this town -- confrontation. >> he's not a fan of it, but i bet he's pretty good at it, i'm going to guess, go out on a limb on that. thank you, john. appreciate that. >>> still ahead on "starting point," president obama has faced well publicized battles with congress. we're going to talk to senator angus king, an independent. he says he came to washington to shake things up. we'll ask him what that means straight ahead. ♪ [ male announcer ] the distances aren't getting shorter. ♪ the trucks are going farther. the 2013 ram 1500 with best-in-class fuel economy. engineered to move heaven and earth. guts. glory. ram. the new ram 15

a special task force to develop responses to the tragedy not only at sandy hook elementary school, but the daily tragedies we see all across america. the nation's mayors and vice president biden have stood together for many, many years in support of public safety. after all, it was then-senator joe biden who championed the crime bill, which established the cops program and included the ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, which congress unfortunately, allowed to expire. yesterday, i was personally very proud to be in the white house as president obama and vice president biden unveiled a strong, comprehensive package of legislative and regulatory reforms needed to response to the ongoing gun violence in america's cities and suburbs. seey day america's mayors the carnage caused by illegal guns and assault weapons that have no place on our nation's streets. working with president obama, vice president biden and the congress, we will make sure that the changes that are needed to protect our children are made. ladies and gentlemen, u.s. conference of mayors, welcome bac
, and to honor, the lessons of sandy hook elementary school? and the realization that unacceptable levels of gun violence plague our cities and towns every day. this unspeakable tragedy, and the individual tragedies that take place on your streets all too often and all too often unnoticed, stand as stark reminders of our shared responsibility to address not just the epidemic of gun-related crimes, and the ongoing need for vigorous enforcement of our laws but also the underlying conditions that give rise to gun violence. throughout our history, the overwhelming majority of american gun owners have been responsible, law-abiding citizens. yet we've repeatedly seen -- in the most tragic ways -- how easy it can be for dangerous people to acquire, and wreak havoc with, deadly weapons. although there's no single solution that can bring a decisive end to this senseless violence, it's incumbent upon each of us to try. and it's time to consider what common-sense steps we can take together -- to save lives. this means doing everything we can to secure the tools and resources we need to keep guns out of the

which was so hard hit by superstorm sandy. they performed at the oscars and they are singing god bless the "usa today." james taylor is performing today. kelly clarkson will be singing "my country tis of thee." and beyonce singing "the star spangled banner." >> it has to be an honor to be selected by the president to sing. thinking about james taylor it was interesting to note if it would have gone differently, he would have been senator taylor. >> he said the right thing. i should do what i love and do what i do best. >> when real estate people talk about location location blair house has it all. margaret brennan is there to show us what's inside. margaret good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. blair house is about location location, location. it's the president's guest house. it's where heads of state come to stay where they come to the capitol. it's also where incoming presidents live until inauguration day. reporters rarely get a look inside, but the chief of protocol took us on a tour. >> welcome to the blair house, the president's guest house. >> t

in a way you wonder because of superstorm sandy and the amount of money, if you are going to talk about the budget, you have to have this conversation about the climate since these natural disasters clearly are becoming more and more, but i want to point out a quote that barack obama said in an interview five years ago when he was still running for president, and he compared himself to reagan. he says i think ronald reagan changed the trajectory in america in a way that richard nixon did not and in a way that bill clinton did not. the reason i point out that quote. i thought it was an important quote, and it gave you a sense of what kind of president obama wanted to be, and i think you've heard in the maugral address today in the way that president obama believes ronald reagan mainstreamed the conservative movement in the 1980s, that one of the things he wants his president to do is to basically mainstream the liberal progressive movement in the same way, so if the country is, say, center or center right, you can have this argument that when he leaves that he has mainstreamed it and mov
hurricane sandy that hit the whole east coast -- people have been warning for years with the rising sea levels, the more intense storms, the climate change that we have to get our infrastructure right. we thought we found that out from hurricane katrina. of course, we did nothing because our government is not responding to any of the major challenges we have in this country. the idea, starting around 1981, was to star of the beast, so- called, to just get the size of the government down -- to start -- to starve the beast. one of the problems we have is an underclass that cannot find its way out and no longer has any kind of helping hand. >> i think jeffrey sachs just shanked you. and being funny. i thought i heard him say that one of the mistakes we made was back in the 1980's when you were around and running things. one of the mistakes was making our priority all about shrinking government. >> jeffrey sachs and i have a fundamental disagreement, and i suspect most of this panel will have a fundamental disagreement about a couple of facts. it is a fact that this coming march is the 49th
boehner, if he wants to get bipartisan vote as he did on sandy relief, he has to be able to drop the hat, and it's personal changes and institutional changes. >> mr. mayor, you run one of the largest cities in the country, san antonio, texas. what can the president do to help? what do you need? >> the president can do what he has began during his first term. two great examples are to collaborate with agencies in his administration. making the transportation department work with the education department, work with the e.p.a., sustainable communicates, promised neighborhoods. to invest in brain power and education, and also lift up neighborhoods at the same time. and to his credit, he's been more collabrative with mayors, i think than we've seen in a long time. so i have a lot of hope for the second term. >> mayor castro of san antonio, texas, and brother joaquin castro in congress, very kind of you to spend a moment with us. >> great to be here. >> the president will be leaving the capitol shortly. he'll go out the east front where members of the u.s. military have been assembled so that
